Organizing Your Recipes!

Alright ladies!  Before I get started posting should all know the best way to organize them.  I finally started doing this after scouring countless cookbooks, google-ing and searching everywhere for that recipe that my husband loves.  Here's what I did and its super simple!

Get yourself a cheap three ring binder.  You can find them just about anywhere for about $2 or less.  Then pick up a package of dividers.  I like to use the plastic dividers...because afterall...this thing sits in my kitchen...and messes happen!  I have my dividers labeled as follows:  Chicken, Beef, Pork, Crockpot, Fish, Soups/Chili's, Sides, Desserts, Other.  You can add to/delete any of these according to your families tastes!

Once you get a recipe you absolutely LOVE...print it out...punch some holes in it...and stick it in the corresponding section.  Let me tell you...this has cut down on tons of time finding recipes.  I only put the keepers in the book!  Hope it works for you!

  1. Love this idea. I currently use a tin box with a flip lid designed for small cards of recipes...hand written of course...and I think your idea sounds easier. I might have to switch. Love the blog, very cute and interesting. Love you girl!
